Huawei Mate 50 Kunlun display variants sold out, consumers need to wait until October
Huawei Mate 50 series is not going to leave the headlines space so easily. And why not, it is one of the most bashing devices in the history of smartphones. In the latest edition, the news is running regarding the sold-out scenario of Huawei Mate 50 Kunlun Glass variants.
Yes! Huawei Mate 50 series and especially its Kunlun Glass variants are so much popular among consumers that they sold out within seconds. However, every good thing has some negative impact and so has happened with the Mate 50 lineup.
The huge selling of the Mate 50 models brought a shortage in the units. Though the company increased the production capacity of the Mate 50 devices immediately after the sold-out result. Yet, the upcoming number of units was not enough to calm down consumer demand.
Hence, this supply chain will take some time to get back on the original track. According to the Weibo blogger @FactoryDirectorShiGuan, the Chinese tech giant has hyped the production capacity of the Mate 50 series Kunlun variants. But, the supply chain will be improved after mid-October.
On the flip side, the blogger also states that the rush will slow down till November. So, instead of paying a higher price for the Mate 50, users can keep patience till November to grab the device with its actual cost tag.
Huawei Mate 50 Kunlun Glass.
Well, there is no doubt why Mate 50 Kunlun Glass Edition is so favored among users. Consequently, it is one of the strongest glass protectors that secures your device from almost every external drop and damage.
Moreover, these glasses have qualified for the first Swiss SGS five-star drop-resistance certificate. In comparison to the normal screen protectors, these mechanisms use 108 microcrystalline raw materials in their manufacturing.
The Kunlun Display Shields are 10 times tougher than ordinary ones. But at this moment, these elements are a little away from the user’s reach. Don’t worry, just a few days more, and you will have your favorite Mate 50 version in your hands.

The feature is available in settings and if the user is opt-in to the feature, you just have to tap the slider and give your consent.
